ARE YOU READY?

This place inside my mind,
a place I like to hide
you don't know the chances
what if I should die?
a place inside my brain
another kind of pain.
You don't know the chances
I'm so blind
blind
blind


Another place I find
to escape the pain inside
you don't know the chances,
what if I should die?
A place inside my brain
another kind of pain,
you don't know the chances,
I'm so blind
blind
blind

Deeper deeper deeper
as I journey to live a life that seems to be
a lost reality
that I can never find
a way to reach
my inner self-esteem is low
how deep can I go
in the ground that I lay if I don't find a way to see through the gray that crowd my mind,
this time I look to see what's between the lines

I can see
I can see
I'm going blind(x12)

I'm blind(x4)

    Song MeaningThis is a very strong emotional song.
    It's basically about fantasy lives we escape to in our mind's. When life is just to much, and we just wanna try and find some happiness. We create fallacies in our mind to block out all the negativity in the world. But sometimes we think about them too much, and we forget that it's not real, and that we have a real life we're living that is real.
    "This place inside my mind. A place I like to hide."
    "Deeper deeper deeper
    as I journey to live a life that seems to be
    a lost reality
    that I can never find a way to reach
    my inner self-esteem is low
    how deep can I go
    in the ground that I lay if I don't find a way to see through the gray that cloud my mind,
    this time I look to see what's between the lines"

    General Commenti think its about how drugs can take you to a different part of your brain,and makes you leave the real world,causes you to be sort of blind.Thats what i think.

    General CommentNu-metal is shit I hate that term. Korn should only be known as korn not Nu-metal, not rap-rack, not gangster-metal. none of that just korn. you can't put korn into any category except original.

    My InterpretationI think the lyrics talk about a person who is suffering from a depersonalization disorder (one of the many dissociative disorders). It is often caused by strong feelings of anxiety, probably what Jonathan Davis felt after being abused as a child and then ignored by their parents (who thought he was lying). It is very common for abused children to experience this kind of problems in their childhood or even later in life.

    This disorder brings intense feelings of depersonalization and/or derealization, like the ones described in parts of the song such as: «I'm so blind», «a lost reality that I can never find», «a way to reach my inner self(esteem)» et cetera.

    The persons who suffer from the condition tend to create a place inside their minds where they "hide" theirselves and try to avoid reality at all costs for it being too painful to deal with, sometimes even losing control over what they do in their realities: «a lost reality that I can never find»

    General CommentKorn has been around for a decade now, and regardless of what anyone says, are the one of the most influential bands in the creation of the "nu-metal" genre. When Machinehead's first few albums (Burn My Eyes, etc...) came out, they didn't even play in a nu-metal style - Rather they were a thrash band that later sold out to jump on the nu-metal train with The Burning Red and Supercharger.
